BBDO Defines the World's Daily Rituals
Don't you love big research studies that nicely categorize the entire world's population into five, easy to define behavioral patterns? We do too. After all, it's too much work to create ads that address everyone's individual behavior. It's much easier to point to a big study that bases itself on the fact every human on the planet earth goes through the same ritualistic periods each day. So we give big props to BBDO who's now made every planner, media planner and creative's lives easier...or not with a recently released study examining the world's daily rituals..
OK, so there were some actual finding's in this study that could be deemed usable such as the fact 84 percent of Polish people shower at night versus 92 percent of Mexicans who do so in the morning. Clearly, different approaches to the marketing of bath products between these two countries we appear to be a no brainer. O the fact women in Columbia, Brazil and Japan love to apply makeup while driving at twice the rate of women in the rest of the world. Perhaps that's indicative of the need for an entirely new line of car-based cosmetics products. Close to 41 percent of Chinese schedule sex as compared to seven percent of Americans. Perhaps condom makers cold go the route of "for that special 9:36PM moment."
Come on BBDO, this was supposed to make our lives easier! We liked when we could just create one ad and run it the world over.
